Talisa Sutton Told Us She Loves This Pretty Pink Perfume, and Now We Want It Too
Looking for a new winter perfume? Right now, there's a lot to of new stuff to choose from. From spicy and woody numbers (typical of the season), to light-as-air florals and gourmand confections, all preferences are covered. The real issue is knowing how to narrow it down when there are endless options out there. As always, recommendations help. Of course, that's where we come in (stay tuned for an upcoming breakdown of the best scents this winter has to offer), but we also love an external endorsement. Especially when it comes from a budding beauty guru. Enter INF / Network member Talisa Sutton of Badlands, who recently told us all about a pink perfume she's in love with. (She was pretty convincing because now we want it too.)
The influencer recently collaborated with Salvatore Ferragamo in celebration of its newest launch, Signorina In Fiore, a fragrance she calls: "Fun, playful and the perfect mixture of a not-too-sweet fruity and floral." (FYI, it's a juicy cocktail of nashi pear sorbet, cherry blossom, jasmine, white musk, and sandalwood, if you're into that kind of thing.) Like us, the influencer "can’t get enough of all things pink at the moment", which explains her affinity for the girly glass bottle. According to Sutton, the juice itself is "suited to any woman who wants to embrace the feminine and romantic side of their personality". We sat down with the her to chat everything perfume, from clever application tips to how she shops for a seasonal scent. Sound good?

Byrdie Australia: What’s your first-ever scent memory?
Talisa Sutton: When I was a child my mum wore Shalimar ($149)—that fragrance will forever remind me of her.
B: Why do you choose to wear fragrance?
TS: Fragrance can be quite nostalgic, and also very powerful. It’s the finishing touch to any outfit, and putting on perfume is often the last thing I do before heading out the door. Certain fragrances remind me of special memories. Others evoke a mood, whether that be strong, independent, feminine, playful, sweet, or mysterious.
B: How do you decide which fragrance to wear?
TS: I rotate between a few different fragrances. Which one it ultimately does come down to, is a mixture of how I’m feeling, the weather, my outfit, and the occasion.
B: Any application tricks you can share?
TS: I always apply to both wrists separately and behind my ears. Sometimes I like to add a light mist in my hair to further hold the scent.
B: What do you look for when choosing a winter fragrance?
TS: I look for something that's unique, and compliments my vision for the season. I tend to love woody, vanilla notes in winter, and lighter florals in spring and summer.
